Jury selection in prison guard appeal
Jury selection is set to begin today for one of three men who were found guilty of assaulting a prisoner while they were working as prison guards.
Ernest Spaziano, of Burrillville, Capt. Caulter Botas, of Pawtucket and Lt. Kenneth J. Viveiros, of North Providence, appealed the District Court's February guilty verdicts. They were given suspended sentences and probation.
Jury selection in Spaziano's trial is set to start today in Superior Court, according to Michael J. Healey, spokesman for Attorney General Patrick Lynch.
Botas and Viveiros will be tried separately.
